Head Auror Brenton "Brody" Whittemore (né Hudson), O.M. (First Class), is a half-blood wizard, the youngest child of Christopher Hudson and Carole Howell and one of the most famous wizards of modern times. Brody is one year younger than his brother Finn Hudson. He began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 and was sorted into Hufflepuff House. He became the male Hufflepuff Prefect in 1995 alongside his stepbrother. He is one of the four Elementals and has the element fire under his control.
His father died in a war when he was only one years old. It left his mother all alone to take care of an infant and a newborn baby. Thankfully, his mother got a new love in her life, Joshua Dunbar, the father of Patrick and Liam Dunbar, whom also mourned the loss of his respective partner. They found strength in each other and decided to live with their families under one roof after they got married.
Early life (1980-1991)
Brody Hudson was born on July 13, 1980 to Christopher and Carole Howell. He is the youngest child of the Hudson family and together with older brother Finn, raised somewhere in Greatt Britain. Carole, as a proud and happy house mother, raised and took care for the children when father Christipher, who was a Muggle-born, was very often away for being a soldier in war zones. On occasion, good family friends Joshua and Alice Dunbar visited the mansion with their sons Patrick and Liam Dunbar. Over the decades, the members of the Hudson and Dunbar families have maintained a very tight and close relationship. They often visit each other to babysitting on the childeren.
Even as a baby, Brody has always been very perceptive of his surroundings. He immediately felt it when his mother, his father or his older brother Finn walked into the room as he immediately started to giggle and clap with his hands. Carole was always proud that he was such a happy baby and his father was happy that he never gave them any trouble like Finn never did. Finn always looked out for him when his parents were in a different room to make sure that nothing bad happened with his baby brother and he always shared the toys he used to play with when he was a baby himself.
As Alice died, Carole often visited Joshua to help him with the rapidly growing infants, most of the time bringing her two sons with her as well. It didn't take long before Joshua managed to return the favor and also started to babysit on Finn and Brody for a while, although Finn proudly puffed his chest, saying that "he didn't need to be babysat" and that he was a "grown boy who was going to protect his brothers." Due to the extreme nature of the relationships between the two famiies, they saw each other as members of their own family and acted like it in private and public.
So it didn't come as a surprise when Brody noticed that something was off when his father suddenly never came home again. He noticed that his mother was very sad and cried all the time and that Finn suddenly got very quiet and in turn, it made Brody cry out and trash around a lot as a baby, not liking the fact that something bad had happened that changed the entire atmosphere in the house.
Brody's father, who was a United States Marine, died in 1981 while serving in Iraq. Carole got the call when she was making dinner for the boys.
Life with the Dunbars (1981-1991)
Finn and Brody started to get used to Joshua, Patrick and Liam being in their house as they started to forget that they hadn't seen their father in over a couple of months. As everyone grew up, Finn and Brody started to call Joshua dad, while Patrick and Liam started to call Carole mom, mostly due to the fact that the two got married a few years later after falling in love when they had mourned their respective partners. Joshua decided to leave the Dunbar mansion in the hands of the family mansion until Patrick turned eighteen, and he decided to permanently move into the Hudson residence with his sons.
Brody's childhood was okay. His stepfather was acting like a fantastic dad, his mother gave him all her love, and he had three amazing siblings with whom he always went on adventures and they always spent time together. But after being bullied when Brody turned 6 years old, it made him feel very uncertain. As lucky he was, he had his older brother Finn, who stood up for him and taking care that the bullies would leave him alone. Everything changes for Brody when Finn had to leave for Hogwarts and would be gone for nine months at best, something that Brody, Patrick and Liam had to get used to, but at least they still had each other while Finn had no one. They made sure to send letters to Finn every week with pictures, written with the help of Joshua and Carole, to include Finn in their adventures and they also made sure to let him know that he was missed very much.
Then the day arrived on which Brody and Patrick both received their Hogwarts letter which they were incredibly happy about. Liam, however, was sulking in the corner because this meant that they would also be gone for an entire year and that he would be all by himself. Brody, Patrick and Finn comforted Liam as best as they could, letting him know that he only had to wait one more year until he would be attending Hogwarts with them, and the last couple of weeks before the Hogwarts Express would take them to Hogwarts, they made sure to do as much fun activities with Liam as a parting gift.
Hogwarts years (1991-current)
Brody was very nervous about going to Hogwarts and in which house he should sort in. Brody and Patrick met Scott McCall when they were waiting to board the Hogwarts Express because his father, who is working alongside Scott's father, saw him waiting on the other side of King's Cross. After being introduced to each other by their parents, the three boys said goodbye to their parents and Liam, who was crying softly, before entering the train and looking for an empty compartment to sit in. During the ride to school, they started to talk about the Houses, what they expect from the classes and they each start telling each other the stories their parents have told them about their time at Hogwarts.
Brody was sorted into Hufflepuff House, the House in which his eldest brother Finn was also sorted in, alongside his stepbrother and best friend Patrick and newfound friend Scott McCall. They were then taken to their common room in which they discovered that the three of them would be sleeping in one dorm alongside Isaac Lahey and Stiles Stilinski during their entire time at Hogwarts. The five of them occasionally hung out in and outside their common room in order to form a close bond, since no one wanted to be sleeping in a dorm with people they couldn't stand to be around.

Brody was very excited for this year, to learn more spells and to reunited with his Hufflepuff friends.
Brody and Patrick were almost every second together before, and many students were very jealous of their close relationship, but that changed in this year. Because Patrick was very intrested in Quidditch, and became the new Chaser of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, he spend more time with the team than with Brody. Brody always supported his stepbrother, but it was sure he felt alone sometimes. Especially when Patrick began to interact with Scott and Stiles more since they were also a part of the team now. He did felt jealous sometimes, but he didn't showed it much because he wanted to support Patrick because he knew it was important for him.
Because Brody wasn't a part of the Quidditch team, and almost every friend of his, who was a part of the team, spend their time for Quidditch practise, he spend his time to make new friends from other houses. In the Greatt Hall, he met Kim Hall, a beautiful girl, with red hair from Gryffindor, were he spend much time with. They goes much to the libary together and starting to like each other.

In the winter, when Christmas is coming and the streets were full of snow, he and Patrick loves to build snowmen, and also made a snowman who looks exact like Snape.
Patrick appreciated the fact that Brody always went to their practises and matches to cheer them on. Brody felt less alone now since he is into a relationship with Kim and support his siblings and friends from the Huffle tribune. After a practise, when Brody walked by Patrick he met Slytherin students Jackson Whittemore and Theo Raeken who were a part of the Slytherin Quidditch team. The moment when Brody saw Jackson, there was something inside of him what made him feel uncomfortable. The look Jackson gave Brody was so lovely, it felt like a door opened inside of his heart.
After Patrick and Theo left the two alone, Jackson tells him that he is the captain of the Slytherin team, which Brody admired. They shared good talks and Brody feelings started to messing around. It felt like Brody felt himself by Jackson, something he didn't felt when he was with Kim. Jackson gave him attention, let him feel lovely and accepted. Jackson and Brody started to hang out more and more, and became closer and closer, and with Kim being aware that Brody hungs out more with him than with her, she started to become jealous. Kim noticed that Brody acted differently ever since he met Jackson. Since Jackson was aware of Brody's bad flying skills, he invited him for private flying prectise. Jackson wanted to help Brody out with his flying skills, because he knew he felt alone because almost every friend of him was at the Quidditch team, and he couldn't join of his bad skills. So at a beautiful night, the two were prectise outside at the Quidditch field and when the two were sitting on the same Broomstick, the two shared their first kiss.
